Anthropology is the study of humankind, our nature as biological, cultural, and social beings, and the changes in our ways of life from earliest times to the present day.
Well-known anthropologists include Margaret Mead, famous for her work in Samoan and New Guinea cultures, and Jane Goodall, who has made significant discoveries about primate societies. If you are interested in human biological evolution, in ancient societies, or in the diversity of peoples, cultures and languages in the contemporary world, anthropology is a good area of study for you.
At The University of Winnipeg, you can concentrate on cultural anthropology, linguistics, archaeology, or biological anthropology–or you may choose an integrated program that includes all four areas. Practical experience is available through field schools as well as hands-on methods courses.
